I had this beer on tap a couple of months ago. Has a nice dark copper color with an appropriate head. The aroma seemed pretty good at first, I could definitely notice the cinnamon, and figured it smelled pretty good--kinda like those places in the mall. The first couple sips were pretty good, but the cinnamon kept leaving aftertastes that kept building up to the point where I was almost nauseated. I only managed to finish about half my pint!

The cinamony/ginger thing is just a turn off. It's something that just doesn't go with beer. At the first taste I thought not bad. It got worse with the second sip. It's just too sweet.

Mild cinnamon aroma. Tastes like gingerbread crackers or something. Thinnish palate. Cool label.

A very drinkable seasonal from Harpoon. Smooth, satisfying flavor with a nice level finish.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 11, 2003
Deep amber red color with a medium thick creamy head and good lace. Sweet spicy (nutmeg/cinnamon?)malt aroma witha hint of hops. Slightly sweet malt flavor full of cinnamon and nutmeg spiciness with a spicy hop finish. medium to full bodied, slightly warming with a touch of dryness.

Tastes like they had Pumpkin Beer leftover so they slapped a "Holiday" label on it. Way to over powering, kinda flat and clouldy. Had worse though.

Nice dark brown color. Perhaps a little cloudy in appearance. Not much head. Strong nutmeg aroma. Flavor has initially strong nutmeg then finishes with a more cinnamon flavor. Only problem is that it is a tad undercarbonated. Good beer.

Frank (3270) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 4, 2003
UPDATED: NOV 2, 2003 2003 Bottle: Pours a lovely deep amber/brown. Head consists of very large bubbles and is quickly diminishing. Nose is loaded with cinnamon with hints of cloves and citrus hops. Slightly watery but so smooth and delicious it hardly matters. Exceptional balance between spice and then usual ale flavors. Unlike other spicy beers, I could drink this all night.

2002 Tap: Very strong notes of nutmeg in the nose along with some cinnamon. The nutmeg persists throughout along with a little more cinnamon and maybe a hint of vanilla. Lush and creamy mouthfeel. Eggnog 0, Beer 1.

An excellent mix of spices (NO FRUIT). One of the best winters that I have had.
